More for the Summer

The Grövelsjö mountains are the gateway to the Swedish alpine tundra environment!

In addition to great hiking opportunities, you can go canoeing on Lake Grövelsjö and other nearby lakes, and fish in small mountain lakes, rivers, streams. Rent a rowboat, or cross Lake Grövelsjö's waters in M/S Sylöra to the mountain farm Sylen on the lake's roadless northern, Norwgian, side. Then hike back across the mountains in the footsteps of the 18th century botanist Carolous Linneaus.  Here you have the chance to see hundreds of reindeer roam by, both in massive herds or in small groups on the mountainside. For a brief period in late summer the area is rich in blueberries, lingon berries, and cloud berries. Or, if you want to meet new acquaintances for a few days you can participate in one of the Swedish Tourist Association's (STF's) themed weeks. If anyone in the family likes to play golf there is an 18 hole golf course in nearby Idre, which has been selected as Sweden's most beautiful golf course!

The Grövelsjö mountains have something  for nature lovers of all ages!

Swimming

Up here you are never far from a refreshing dip in fresh water. Swim at the southern end of Lake Grövelsjön or in one of the smaller lakes on Långfjället. The larger Lake Femunden in the west has several great beaches and  Fjellguttusjoen, just on the other side of the Norwegian border, has a fantastic, long sandy beach.

Experience Sami culture!

Experiencing Sami culture is both exciting and unique! It's easy to get the "reindeer bug" when listening to stories about the Sami and their history. Sami have been active in the Grövelsjön area since time immemorial. Peter and Helena Andersson run Renbiten together, where they combine keeping reindeer with making their own reindeer products, running a small store and café, and providing visitors with a chance to experience Sami culture.

Sitting in a goahti, the original Sami dwelling made of timber and peat moss, enjoying Sami cuisine, or throwing a lasso is an adventure for the whole family. During summer, several hiking tours and other events are organised.

In the store, you'll find self-produced reindeer meat, exclusive Sami handicraft and art, and many souvenirs that make great presents. Here you can also enjoy freshly baked bread and Sami coffee.
